Our case studies are based on real life fitness to practise concerns we have received. They illustrate the types of issues that are taken into consideration by a panel when deciding if a registrant’s fitness to practise is impaired, and if so what sanction to apply.
|Type of concern||Unsafe clinical practice|
Standards of conduct, performance and ethics (updated in August 2012)
